8On the Project Settings panel, click Settings drop-down ➤ Object Styles.

14On the View Control Bar, click Model Graphics Style, and verify that Hidden Line is selected.

Notice that the line color displays in this view, but not the line pattern.

or camera view where you expect to see a solid line. Plans, sections, elevations, and orthogonal 3D
views show line color and pattern.
